BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A tank overflow on an oil pad spilled nearly 19,000 gallons of produced water and contaminated some agricultural land in Stark County.

Produced water is a mixture of saltwater and oil that can contain drilling chemicals. The Health Department says Scout Energy Management on Sunday reported the spill of about 450 barrels a couple of miles west of Dickinson.

State health officials have inspected the site and will continue to monitor remediation.
